their lives. >> you remember this back with katrina, the same thing happened where a lot of residents in new orleans had seen a lot of hurricanes before. and they heard this is going to be the storm of century, and nothing ever happened to their houses, and they ignored evacuation orders. you can't -- there's only so much preparation you can do. you can never create a risk-free society. you can't prepare for everything. you know, but one of the things that has to happen in these situations for things to work right is for the government has a part to play, but individuals have a part to play, too. you've got to be working together so when people -- some of these people, obviously, their pain is genuine and totally understandable. but some of these people did, you know, were told to leave and didn't leave. and you understand why they didn't. it makes sense in human terms, but, you know, there is a responsibility that you have for yourself in addition to what the government obviously has for you. and again, if both sides are woaren't working together, that's when things fall apart. >> the perso
here. the same group that went to the gulf coast following hurricane katrina. the navy is bringing in pumps that they normally use on ships. i want it draw attention to the building behind me. it is staten island ferry entrance. currently all services are suspended indefinitely. the police tape is up by the battery park underpass. because as you can see 50 feet of water is still there. limited subway service began before 6:00 today. mta says 5.5 million people daily right on their subways. they also say any day that their trains are not running it costs them $18 million in revenue. traffic has been a mess throughout the city because of lack of people not being able to use public transportation and road closures. they're making three occupants or more are in each vehicle if they're going over the four east river bridges. they won't get a ticket but they won't let people through if they don't have three people in there. also the area around where the crane collapsed in midtown is still frozen. we heard from the mayor bloomberg and he is saying that that is going to be weekend before

of sandy, new jersey and new york were a cold katrina. i believe that it was -- i thought that was a fantastic ." but now, really, all eyes, and i want you to get to this c'mon ohio. everybody is wondering what will happen in ohio. extensive polling. people thinking seriously about where the southern part of the state will go, where the northern part will go. can romney capture the areas that are largely coproducing to act when you look at ohio, what counties will you be watching to mark? what do you think will happen? >> rather than counties got three big cities and counties that surround them. one is cleveland, the democratic stronghold. obviously columbus and cincinnati, which is more republican. at the end of the day here, this is a state that has a tendency to switch. you have to remember that governor casey won the governorship. george w. bush won the presidency back again in 2004 in ohio. it is the bellwether. it's not just -- everybody always wants to say no republican has ever won -- well, no democrat has ever won either. can be lost to nixon in 1960, but otherwis

exactly because we do not know the total number. some think it will only be second to katrina. there will be tens of billions of dollars. we are doing a continual resolution until april 1. whether or not that will be enough remains to be seen. every time there's a disaster on the west coast, an earthquake, a flood and the mississippi, a tornado, we pull together as congress, republicans and democrats and do what has to be done. i do not expect new jersey will be treated any differently. i know my colleagues in surrounding states, especially in new york and new england states were very hard hit. i have been in contact with republicans and democrats. i think we are going to join together and do what is necessary. we do not know what those numbers are. i think it is premature to speculate too much. host: thank you for joining us. good luck to you. guest: thank you. host: a want to point to an editorial in bloomberg. that cannot from michael bloomberg, the mayor of new york. he writes that he votes for president to lead on climate change. he says the climate is changing how the in

and uneven sfons to katrina and being too slow to spend money in haiti. as for sandy, mcgovern says it poses unique challenges, victims stacked in high rises, a storm area the size of europe. now, we asked mcgovern why if her dwrup is doing such a great job so many are upset with the red cross. she says there are a lot of people hurting and hearing the cries for help and will respond aas quickly as possible. by the way, the red cross does promise that 91 cents of every dollar donated will be spent to help victims of this storm, tamron. >> thank you very much for that report. and a major overhaul at the world's largest broadcaster. the top two officials at london's bbc now out in the wake of a child sex abuse scandal that is epic. we'll get the latest from london on what's happening there. plus, an interesting question from our first read team. here's the question. is the independent vote overrated? what is your answer? it is certainly worth asking after governor romney won among independents but lost the election. don't tell us your answer. after the break tell us and scream it at the televi
barbour model in mississippi after the katrina disaster. he took that disaster and used the opportunity to basically rebuild some of those communities. it takes planning. it takes courage and leadership. i, in fact i suspect you will find in both those states with the governors. bill: that is great example. thanks for bringing that to light. let's bring to what fox news was reporting late last night with regard to libya. a big turn now. now we have this letter that was september out a couple weeks before the attack in benghazi which clearly showed the presence of al qaeda training camps in the town of benghazi. there was a lot of concern about this. where are you on this story today? >> well i think there's a huge gap between what happened and what the administration's told us. only the president can fill the gap with the truth and at the end of the day i think there is it lesz son to be learned and perhaps passed onto the kids. we had seals to ran to the ambassador's aid, in running to his aid they gave their lives. we have an administration that is running from the ambassador, perhaps
after hurricane katrina in my time at the white house and the homeland security staff is that you preposition yourself in the area before the zone is impacted. you do the precoordination, prestage assets, video teleconferencing from the white house with alt federal agencies, putting those resources in place before the storm hits. >> brian: they are out of poles! they don't have enough poles to replace the broken poles. we don't have water or gas. they don't have a plan, they don't have a communications apparatus. i don't understand why your governor is basically hostage to these people! he's acting like an outraged resident where he should be taking action demanding something to change! there are faceless bureaucracy, monopoly that operates without incentives. no kidding. they are before and now after and during. >> some of those precoordination meetings with the national government would be with the emergency operations centers. getting an idea from the state what resources do you have? >> brian: did that take place? >> i have no idea. >> brian: it didn't take place at your level
experience with hurricane katrina, will that go through tuesday? >> it looks like it will go through tuesday. it's a big boost for president obama. he got the opportunity once again to operate in a crisis mode and got very high thumbs up from everybody, including republican governor, conservative governor chris christie. i think mitt romney made a terrible mistake. many people in the republican party are beating up on christie for being too warm or something, too kind to president obama. i think mitt romney made a mistake of not acting more presidential. calling republican governors and mobilizing people to bring supplies in. and taking more -- be positive about president obama. americans aren't voting a political leader. they are looking for a leader. >> you wrote mitt romney ought to have said i'm 100% behind this president. we're americans right now. his leadership is important for the country. how would you sell that to his campaign advisers? >> the problem mitt romney has and this isn't about advisers anymore. it's about saving the jersey shore and staten island. it's about caring enoug

of katrina, this became a very different situation. what has happened here, i think, are a combination of things. people saw the president at work. they saw him essentially being a good steward in a time of serious crisis. they saw the ability for him to reach across the aisle and to work with the republican governor, chris christie, the governor of new jersey. the third thing i think that came out of all of this is the sense that government has a role to play. and that in all three of those instances, good policy and good professional work probably was very good politics for the president. having said that, it is important to know that the change we have seen in our own polling from our earlier work is minuscule. it is not as though there has suddenly been a large band wagon to the president's side. giffords been some movement in terms of the jobs rating -- there has been some movement in terms of the jobs rating and how the -- how he is handling the economy. possibly a little pick up in the area of feeling positively about the direction of the nation. all of those things probably hav
